an artistic exploration of the chakras
"The Sanskrit word Chakra literally translates to wheel or disk. In yoga, meditation, and Ayurveda, this term refers to wheels of energy throughout the body. There are seven main chakras, which align the spine, starting from the base of the spine through to the crown of the head. To visualize a chakra in the body, imagine a swirling wheel of energy where matter and consciousness meet. This invisible energy, called Prana, is vital life force, which keeps us vibrant, healthy, and alive."
This project came out of an open-ended homework assignment for the Building Resilience in Body, Mind, and Spirit course at The Center for Justice and Peacebuilding 2017 Summer Peacebuilding Institute. Each piece represents an individual chakra, hand drawn on raw wood in the style of a mandala, and accompanied by a haiku representative of its unique aspects.
